Cher Up Charlies

“What am I supposed to do?” You may ask when considering your plans for Cher’s 78th birthday. “Sit around and wait for you to invite me to a Cher-themed drag show? Well, I can’t do that.” BUT WAIT! No waiting needed, baby, because if you believe in life after love – and the power of pop – then you’re invited to Brigitte Bandit’s annual Cher-iffic drag show. There’ll be a DJ set by Turito, drag by Brigitte, Arianna Venti, Riot Girl, Joselyn Breezy, Bubu, Jenna Talia, Miss Steelya Girl, and Flex Brojas, and a lookalike contest. Fun fact: Brigitte’s own Mama Bandit, who’ll also be performing, has won several Cher lookalike competitions including one written up in the Chronicle. Stick around post-show for Honey Baby and Lavender Thug’s inside Cher-aoke. – James Scott
